      Stephen:

      In the conversation in previous messages about this there is some
      overloading of terms. I am almost sure David meant the "ilitiy" word,
      to mean "architectural features" only i.e. things like:

      flexibliity
      extensibility
      composability
      resilience
      performance
      etc.


      Basically he was referring to the fact that the Sprint Backlog
      could have tasks for "alitiies" and "ilities" :-)

      Considering the above, your spreadsheets, or lists, should look
      like:

      ================================================================
      Sprint Goal:
      Make the system do X by providing the first two -Alities
      and the first -Ility.

      Product Backlog:
      story allocated_to_sprint priority rough_estimate complete(2)
      STORY1(1)
      STORY2
      STORY3
      STORY4

      Story Backlog (create a new sheet for each Sprint):
      story task comments priority owner est1(3) est2 est3 ...
      STORY1 Task 1 (4)
      STORY1 Task 2
      STORY2 Task 1
      STORY2 Task 2
      STORY2 Task 3

      Acceptance Tests
      story test_name test_description status (5)
      STORY1 Test 1
      STORY1 Test 2
      STORY2 Test 1
      STORY2 Test 2
      STORY2 Test 3
      ================================================================

      NOTES:
      (1) PRODUCT BACKLOG ITEM == FUNCTIONALITY == STORY == FEATURE
      example:
      The system should provide for invoicing for
      PHI Access reports (an -Alitity, or
      The system should be made out or reusable components
      (an -Ility)
      (2) Complete means passed ALL Acceptance Tests, it is basically
      a summary of the acceptance test results for that story
      (3) The "est" numbers are the daily estimates. They are used
      to produce a "burndown" chart.
      (4) SPRINT BACKLOG ITEM == TASK FOR PRODUCT BACKLOG ITEM allocated
      for that Sprint
      (5) passed/failed/not tested

      I hope this helps,

      - Mike
